Will they investigate the provable violence against Zimmerman, who is also the child of parents?

Good.

More evidence of Holder’s malicious intent for Zman’s civil rights case.

Let me guess he wants to have the allegedly uncomfortable dialogue on race again, which if anyone then tells him the truth, he will start screaming “Racist!” at them.

I’m more than ready to have that discussion. It begins with why are you fanning racial tension, wasting my time and money, and persecuting an innocent man? Aren’t you lawyer enough to watch the same trial I did and know there was no evidence of a racial incident?

Honestly, I would expect the Justice Department to proceed with charges against Zimmerman, whether or not he meets the requirements, simply to punitively punish him financially from the costs of defending himself, and by the emotional toll it will cost him to spend the next few years of his life tied up in this.

The cost to the United States doesn't matter to Obama or Holder, and neither does eventually winning or losing.

Isn’t this violating Zimmerman’s civil rights?

“unnecessary shooting death of Trayvon Martin”

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Justifiable+homicide

justifiable homicide n. a killing without evil or criminal intent, for which there can be no blame, such as self-defense to protect oneself or to protect another, or the shooting by a law enforcement officer in fulfilling his/her duties. This is not to be confused with a crime of passion or claim of diminished capacity which refer to defenses aimed at reducing the penalty or degree of crime. (See: homicide, self-defense)

It’s not really about revenge either; it is about promoting the idea of revenge for personal and party gain. It’s the National Socialist Democrat Party way.

Let them investigate, accuse, prosecute GZ......the more the merrier and the bigger GZ lawsuit and settlement. Remember how adamant the martins were in the beginning that ths was racial profiling, hate crime? Just a little before the trial started Crump started walking back these accusations, “they never wanted this to be about race, it isn’t about race, they just want a fair trial”. Well they didn’t have a softening of the heart......Crump and the state if DUH knows they are in deep doodoo. They even have a Crump deposition.....that I bet buries everyone.

To show the sympathies of the Internet, elsewhere someone wrote of a new drink, called the “Trayvon Martini”.

1 part gin
1 part Arizona Iced Tea, watermelon flavor
1 few Skittles.

Someone else noted that gin would taste yucky with AIT-wf, so why not use vodka?

Then it would be a “Trayvon Gibson”.

I have been wondering the same thing, ever since he ordered the burning to death or the children in Waco under Clinton.

Just heard Jesse Jackson on NH Public Radio (SIGINT Interception).

He wants the UN involved, and wants to change the court system so that the jury is made up of a “jury of peers” of the “victim” (i.e., Trayvon), in other words black juries for black victims.

I terminated the intercept before I threw up.

Of course, as this celebration unfolds, we are also mindful of the pain felt by our nation surrounding the tragic, unnecessary shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida last year


Hey Eric.

As an attorney, and by the way the highest in the land, don’t you realize that the judicial process and jury found that this “ shooting death”
was due to “ self defense” and therefore “ justified”

“speak honestly about the complicated and emotionally-charged issues that this case has raised.”

So we are finally going to talk about the massive culture of criminality in the black “community”, and hugely disproportionate number of young black thugs like Trayvon?

Didn’t think so.

I believe that this tragedy provides yet another opportunity for our nation to speak honestly about the complicated and emotionally-charged issues that this case has raised.

BS! I've never once seen a black person who used the tired cliche that "we need an honest conversation about race" that actually wanted an honest conversation about race. Their version of the honest conversation is more lecturing and excuses with any honesty from the other side being dismissed as racism.

We must not – as we have too often in the past – let this opportunity pass.

When have black agitators ever let an opportunity for this allegedly honest discussion about race pass? Hell, we had outrage and "the discussion" when a professor locked himself out of his house.

Replace the gin with Robitussin cough syrup, and you get "purple drank" or "purple lean".

Since Martin discussed the recipe in significant detail on his Facebook page (before it was deleted), it's probably safe to assume that's why he bought the other two ingredients.

I can hardly bare what they are doing in this matter of Zimmerman...and of course has nothing any longer to do with him...but is it actually possible to do more than convict for monetary damages? He can’t be tried again.

Sorry but I cannot handle much of this debackle... but like to know what options they actualy have....other than to continue to take the Zimmerman family thru the hell they’ve already done!

The tragedy occurred when the perp physically assaulted another person beating him around the head and face, busting his nose, and then pounding his head into the pavement, clearly with intent to kill. That’s not the civil way for a human being to act. Something lacking in his upbringing.

IE: That the Obama Administration will not let go waste.

"Independent of the legal determination"

IE: Code words, any way they can.

“He wants the UN involved, and wants to change the court system so that the jury is made up of a “jury of peers” of the “victim” (i.e., Trayvon), in other words black juries for black victims.”

So much for the fascade (their lie) that the left wants a “color-blind” America and equal treatment and justice for ‘all’.

They don’t want equal treatment. They want SPECIAL treatment. And they’ve already been getting it for decades now. Trayvon is a case in point, re: the special treatment he got for his criminal activities.

It’s madness and backasswards from true justice. When will it end? When will we step up and end it? Never? I’m beginning to wonder now.
